A.J. Brown may have been the biggest recruiting target in Tuscaloosa this weekend.
Brown, a four-star wide receiver from Starkville, Miss., tweeted shortly after his official visit that “Alabama was great. That’s all you need to know.” All weekend, Brown was posting pictures of his trip, and he even posted a video of him squaring off against Nick Saban in a game of “Pop a Shot.” Brown lost to Saban.

The 6-foot-1, 220-pounder told SEC Country in December that Alabama was one of the schools that were sticking out to him, along with Mississippi State, Ole Miss and California. Here’s what he had to say about one visit to Nick Saban’s office that was emblazoned on his mind.
“I was pretty much drooling, man,” Brown told SEC Country back in December during the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game check-in. “He was talking the whole time, but I really wasn’t listening. I was just looking around at all of the trophies.”
Brown is expected to announce his commitment on National Signing Day, so Crimson Tide fans are going to have to wait this one out for a couple more weeks.
